Whilst I can’t say I’m a fan of that video, it does raise a very interesting question. How has the constant availability of endlessly consumable content affected how I spend my time at the computer, and my spare time for that matter?
The Shallows: How the Internet is Changing the Way We Think, Read and Remember is definitely a book destined for my reading list, and although I cannot spare the time to read it just yet, with exams approaching, I have decided to conduct an experiment changing the way I use the internet.
I’ve installed a new browser, I’m not looking at twitter, not watching YouTube videos, and I’m certainly not going on cheezburger. For a month.
